Chaos Walking Trailer

Back in the spring of 2019, it was said that Doug Liman‘s new sci-fi film Chaos Walking was “unreleasable,” and Lionsgate was going to spend millions of dollars on reshoots in an attempt to fix it. Well, we can finally get a taste of those results as the first Chaos Walking trailer has arrived, revealing that Tom Holland lives on a planet where all women have disappeared and the inner-monologues of men are unwillingly audible for anyone to hear. That’s made all the more complicated when Daisy Ridley shows up. Read More »

lockdown

It’s happening: we’ve arrived in the era of pandemic-themed movies, and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is far from over. And I’m not convinced that it will be over by the time Doug Liman‘s pandemic heist movie, Lockdown, is released, whenever that is. But Hollywood is getting ready to mine the pandemic for all its storytelling potential, with Liman set to direct Lockdown, penned by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and set to star Anne Hathaway.

Justice League Dark concept art

For years, Doug Liman, the director of The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow, and the upcoming movie that will literally launch Tom Cruise into space, was attached to direct Justice League Dark, a sort of oddball superhero team-up movie for Warner Bros. which would have featured lower-tier characters like Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Constantine, Deadman, and Jason Blood appearing together in live-action for the first time. Liman left the project in 2017, and now some concept art from his abandoned version of the movie has made its way online. Check it out below to get a sense of what he had in mind for this unconventional, horror-tinged superhero film. Read More »

Tom Cruise space film

When word first came out that action star Tom Cruise was literally going to outer space to film the first narrative feature shot at the International Space Station, I wondered if the project would mark another reunion between Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie, the writer/director of the two most recent Mission: Impossible movies. While Doug Liman, who worked with Cruise on Edge of Tomorrow and American Made, is the one who will be sitting in the director’s chair, it turns out that McQuarrie will be involved after all.

Tom Cruise's Space Movie

Tom Cruise is going to do what has never been done before: star in a movie among the literal stars.

The Mission: Impossible actor is taking on a seemingly impossible mission of his own, because he’s going to travel to space and shoot a movie on board the International Space Station. Universal Pictures is now in talks to distribute the finished product, which would give the studio a chance to see a real version of its own logo appear on screen in one of its movies.

Tom Cruise has found a filmmaker to accompany him to outer space: Doug Liman. Liman, who directed Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and American Made, is now on board the still-untitled Tom Cruise space movie that plans to really shoot in space, with the help of Elon Musk’s Space X and NASA. In fact, Liman has been involved since the beginning, coming up with the idea with Cruise and even penning the first draft of the script.

Chaos Walking Movie Release Date

The last time we heard about Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley was last April. The adaptation of Patrick Ness’ novel The Knife of Never Letting Go was “deemed unreleasable,” and millions were going to be spent on reshoots for the film from Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. The movie was expected to arrive sometime this year since only three weeks of reshoots were needed to fix the movie, but Lionsgate has now set a release date for January 2021, nearly an entire year away.

doug liman gambit

Doug Liman has been attached to a couple comic book properties over the years, neither of which made their way beyond the planning stages. First there was 20th Century Fox’s embattled X-Men spin-off Gambit, which Liman left before shortly boarding and departing Warner Bros.’ Justice League Dark. But it’s not because the Edge of Tomorrow director is trying to live by his acclaimed 2014 film’s mantra of “live, die, repeat” in his career. Liman revealed why he left both projects, and why the Gambit movie is officially dead in the dust.
